In Madagascar, not far from the well-known Avenue of the Baobabs, are Les Baobabs Amoureux. Entwined together, these two giant baobab trees inspired a local legend, in which a young boy and girl from separate villages fell in love. Each promised in arranged marriages to another, they prayed for a way to be together. In response, the baobabs grew and met, forever inseparable. Against an opalescent field of mica wallpaper, branches interlace, sprouting leaves and flowers that seem to glow against the surface sheen.
